when I was younger, 'Yes' was my favorite group. I managed to see them 5 times in the 1970's. But Chris Squire lived long for a rock star. And YES need to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!!!!

A terrific talent who left us way too early but with a fantastic wealth of music.

The world is a sadder place without Fish.

Sad, Yes was one of the first rock groups I get into... love their "classical" arrangements.

Losing a lot of my favorite bass players who were big in the 70s-80s-90s recently... Mike Porcaro, Louis Johnson, Now Chris Squire... RIP.

Last year when the Rock Hall saw fit to induct Joan Jett and not even bother nominating YES (despite years of entreaties by fans) they lost what little respect I had for them. Nothing but a mouthpiece for hack rock critics espousing their version of political correctness.

RIP Fish. The Yes Album, Fragile and Close to the Edge have been personal favorites for over 40 years.

First saw Yes in '72, a tour recorded in infamy as "Yessongs". Along with Tull, King Crimson, and ELP, they were pioneers of "progressive" rock. Squire's playing and writing were an integral part.

I saw Yes in 1976 with Lynrd Skynrd, Peter Frampton, and Gary Wright outdoors with 70,000 other people. Best concert I ever went to. Yes was superb.

I was at the same concert (forget what racetrack Sportmens or Hawthorne?).

Remember it being real hot and we only stayed through maybe half of Yes's set. Thought Skynrd blew everyone else away, though.

I was mad about Yes as a teen, and even wrote a college research paper about them (it got an A plus - I still have it somewhere). He and Steve Howe were the reasons (it sure was n't Jon Anderson's falsetto, lol). I have always discerned and loved bass lines in music.

13 years to the day after John Entwhistle, bassist for The Who died.

If Entwhistle and Squire both died on the 27th of the month, maybe that is a new kind of '27 club' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/27_Club
